Yesterday, I saw a sign.
I recognize that melting away my stress is extremely important, because
- I’m recovering from an operation I had earlier this week,
- I’m the owner of a very unusual heart, which has outlasted most conventional predictions for longevity, and
- I’m soon returning to work, where I do my best to help others melt away stress.
Therefore, I shall use the other photos I took yesterday in service of helping us all melt away stress.
Ready to melt?
#1. Spend time with friendly creatures
when you’re outdoors
#2. Be kind to yourself, applying things that help you feel better, including
chocolate, pleasing colors,
and every other little thing that gladdens each beat of your beautiful
#3. Keep away from real
as best you can, whether you’re far away
or close to home.
#4. Seek out the beauty that surrounds you, even if you have to spend some time and energy looking for it.
#5. Pay attention to helpful messages from the universe.
#6. Work at
… but let go of worry when communication does not go perfectly smoothly. In almost every case, you’ll have another opportunity to connect.
#8. Come to think of it, let go of worry (and other future-oriented fears) about EVERYTHING, including
#9. Help preserve — or even transform — the world, as best you can.
#10. Listen to more classical music
… whether it’s Spring or any other season.
#11. Indulge in your favorite things whenever possible (like, for example, a showing of the musical “Singin’ in the Rain,” with music performed by the Boston Pops, tonight).
#12. Make ’em laugh (and let them make you laugh, too).
Stress-free thanks to cats, to Boston and its surroundings, to Antonio Vivaldi, to Donald O’Connor, and to all those who help melt away my stress, including you!
